The fishing industry is the lifeblood of so many of our local economies and plays an important role in the economic well-being of our Commonwealth. Massachusetts’s $4 billion fishing industry supports over 80,000 jobs in the Commonwealth and has one of the highest economic impacts of any state’s fishing industries. We need to streamline regulations to improve U.S. competitiveness in the industry and work to improve safety conditions for one of the most important industries in America. The brave men and women of the New England fishing industry deserve our support. I’ll be an advocate for the fishing industry and ensuring that Massachusetts continues to thrive thanks to their tireless hours of hard work at sea.
